  • It is a super nice place and very quiet. You go out and you don't feel chewy because it's fresh water and there's no sand. It has many colors and while you swim you see a lot of nature around you. I hope it will be preserved like this and do not a mini Playa del Carmen or Tulum... It's very nice.

  • The lagoon is magical, just by seeing it you fall in love. The delicious water is not deep and the temperature is rich.

  • Great place to hang out and swim fresh water when your a little sick of swimming salt. Food was ok. Drinks were small. Staff was polite. A great little hidden location.
  • One of the most beautiful places to hang out with your friends or family, the waters are so clear, it looks like Caribbean beach but with sweet water
